Butterflies

Butterflies

We go out with FroK nets and sample jars and catch butterflies (and other little critters).  The event usually starts at 9:00 or 10:00 as the butterflies like it a little warmer than birds do.  Grant identifies and talks about them.  We look and admire them and are careful to release them unhurt.
